The Summoner’s Cup is arguably the most iconic trophy in all esports – and now has a brand new look. The trophy is the prize for the annual world champion in League of Legends, and developer Riot Games teamed up with jewelry brand Tiffany & Co. to refresh the look. The trophy is made of a combination of sterling silver, fine silver, stainless steel, brass and wood and weighs 44 pounds. It also includes a new section with past champions’ names engraved on the bottom, somewhat like the video game equivalent of the Stanley Cup.

The new design is much more streamlined compared to the original, which looked like a heavy piece of medieval weaponry. You can see it in the image below.

While the design will likely be controversial among longtime fans, it’s also part of a trend; Riot previously collaborated with Louis Vuitton on a number of initiatives, including a custom suitcase for the Summoner’s Cup. Tiffany, for his part, has a long history of making trophies in the traditional sports world and made last year the Silver Dragon Cup for the League of Legends China Pro League.

The 2022 edition of the League of Legends World Championships will take place in North America, with the final on November 5.
